Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2012

Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club, home to a highly-rated open parkland layout, is located in the south of Hainan Island, with holes looking out onto Lingshui Bay. Large sandy waste areas, an (over?) abundance of stylish bunkering and threatening lakes all play their part in this challenging Mark Hollinger design.

This well-crafted out-and-back layout shifts inland and onto the other side of a busy road for the middle section of the course. On this north side of the layout, from the long par-3 4th through to the even longer par-3 13th, there's plenty of water in play. Housing and apartment blocks are also much in evidence beyond the course.

Crossing back to the south side of the layout, the double-doglegging par-5 14th leads a three-hole journey down to the shoreline of Lingshui Bay. Here the yet still longer par-3 17th is played directly beside the beach.

Stay & Play at the Blue Bay resort: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
